Ash and Sabrina
We’ve introduced our new kitten to our old cat and it hasn’t gone too bad so far. First we bought Ash, the kitten, down in his cat carrier and although Sabrina wasn’t overly concerned about him she did give him a little sniff. Once loose, Ash started following Sabrina around, he seemed so keen to be friends. Unfortunately, Sabrina was not so keen and did hiss at him. They’ve been in the same room together a few times now and although the hissing has continued, she hasn’t really got any worse towards him. They have even touched noses without incidence.
Ash is a loveable little fella though and I’m sure he’ll win Sabrina over eventually. He is very interested in being friends with her, but he doesn’t pester her constantly.
He’s a lot like having a new baby, he’s kept me awake at night a few times now, and he craves attention all the time. I don’t mind though, he’s so adorable.
The Birthday Bash
It was my brother’s birthday on Friday and we all went out for a meal. It was great catching up with family and having a couple of drinks. I decided to take my sticks and walk in the pub restaurant, the wheelchair was in the boot just in case though. I thought we might need it when we couldn’t find a place in the car park close to the pub. My walking is very restricted so it has to be only a short distance. Then we spotted a place on the road right by the entrance. So, I walked in, much to the surprise of my family inside. The only problem was, they had sat the furthest away from the disabled loos, so I couldn’t drink too much!
The kids enjoyed playing outside and the adults did a lot of catching up. I made my brother’s birthday card myself and I was a bit worried as making cards is something new to me. He loved it though, so I was relieved. I drew a picture of him out with his pug and his drone. If you knew him, you’d know this was exactly him!
The Little Man is doing well with his home education and his folders are already filling up. It’s hard to get him started and it’s hard to keep him going for very long, but in between the hard parts he’s working well. I do actually enjoy teaching him but I do miss having time to myself. Even teaching him for three hours a day is a massive chunk of my time. I do hope we will find a nice school for him soon, or for September when the new school year starts.
Mc Donalds Saves the Day
As I said, we went out on Friday and I did have a couple of vodkas, okay, double vodkas. I didn’t feel drunk, even tipsy, I even managed to walk out of the pub, which is more than I can say for some. I only drink vodka because I have never had a hangover with it. So, imagine my surprise when I woke up Saturday morning with what felt like a massive hangover. I had a headache, felt sick and was even more wobbly than usual. I didn’t feel any better as the day wore on but I tried to hide it as I knew Graham was going out on Saturday night and I didn’t want him to feel he had to stay in because I was hungover.
Unlike a hangover, I got worse and worse as the day wore on and when it came to dinner time, Graham had already left, and I felt awful. My eldest said that he’d buy us a take out to save me cooking, which was great, but I usually still end up cooking for the kids as the only take out’s they’ll eat are ones that you have to pick up, Mc Donalds, KFC, chips shop, and Graham had the car. Then I remembered a flyer that had been put through the door that said our local Mc Donalds now delivers. So I put an order in for the kids and 20 mins later the kids were tucking into their Happy Meals, while the grown ups enjoyed a Chinese.
After dinner I had an early night, going to bed the same time as the kids.
Sunday morning, I woke up still feeling ill, so it wasn’t a hangover after all. I had a restful day and, thankfully, by Monday morning I was feeling okay again.
